  1. Good news at last for belgaumities hope the effort s for udaan 3scheme materialise as promised by central
    government or else we must threaten to boycott the ruling party at the centre and state

  2. Happy with their baggage policy as well. 1 personal item, 1 cabin of 8kg and 1 checkin of 25kg. That will help international passengers take this connecting flight to or from blr. Just hope they partner with airlines soon and honor international baggage policy of the connecting airline, this will avoid all the overnight journeys by bus
